"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

John 14:27


                                        Haiti’s Political and Sinking economy Crises
                                 Uncertainty Is Haiti's normal - The Only Thing We Know For Sure

"A demonstrator kneels in front of a burning barricade holding a bowl and spoon to show his hunger, during a protest to demand the resignation of President Jovenel Moise and demanding to know how Petro Caribe funds have been used by the current and past administrations, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Thursday, Feb. 7, 2019...."


            We could use your prayers!  As you can see from the picture above, Haiti is going through more tough times.  Please keep the people of Haiti in your prayers.

            Desperation continues to escalate as Haitians face an ever increasing unsettled political situation and sinking economy.  This has left Haiti in disarray.  You can visit the story headlined by this picture by clicking here.

            Our original plan was to fly to Haiti on Friday, February 8th.  We rescheduled our trip for Monday, the 11th due to all the unrest.  We continue to monitor the situation and are actively talking with people in country to help us understand the situation in the area where we work and live.  Please pray for missionaries and Non Governmental Organizations (NGO's) that are in country currently and for our return in the midst of these uncertain times.    

A Look into our Lives

         Catching Up:

           You may be wondering what happened to the DeRoos Drumbeat?

           Well, we were almost unplugged for a couple of weeks.  Our internet accessibility has been difficult, but at the same time we embraced this time by spending it in prayer.  At the end of January our typical schedule was impacted by a few events that have kept us preoccupied.  We will share more in the future.  Once we get back and settled in Haiti, we will continue our regular monthly updates.  

           In the mean time, we encourage you to take time to visit our LWC Missionary Moments youtube channel to catch up.  

             Here are a couple of the newest videos:
  1. Smoked Mashed Potatoes Haitian Style - Catherine interacts with a Haitian friend who offers to cook a popular staple food in Haiti over an open fire.  
  2. How to transport fingerlings in Haiti - a unique and necessary way to transport Tilapia fingerlings to survive an 8 hour trip in the heat.
  3. A series of  On the field developments.
